Fat Possum

Soccer Mommy


“Passed you on a side street / Brushed across your wrist like a razorblade.” The first lines from Try, the second track off Soccer Mommy’s Fat Possum debut. It’s also a perfect encapsulation of the band itself: quietly catchy and surprisingly confrontational. Soccer Mommy is the project of Sophie Allison, a nineteen-year-old Nashville native and musical wunderkind. Collection compiles the best of Sophie’s DIY Bandcamp work as well as a few new songs. Sophie sings of toxic relationships and infatuations. Or, as Sophie describes her subject matter, “crush stuff with a hint of bad to it.” The songs can be sweet, they can be happily melancholic or melancholically happy, but they always cut deep. They belong on playlists and mixes, to be shared among friends and belted out during road trips. Allison, a gorgeous meditation on the bittersweet feeling of hurting someone you love while pursuing your own dreams, showcases Sophie’s talent for home recording, with multi- tracked vocals layered to perfection. On Out Worn, a searing takedown of the desire for male validation, is relatable and anthemic, striking the perfect balance between anger and sugary pop bliss. As long as records like Collection exist, there will be no shortage of young artists bashing their hearts out on guitars for years to come. “You can’t say indie rock is dead,” says Sophie. “It’s just being taken over by women.” For fans of Julien Baker, Liz Phair, Frankie Cosmos, Julia Jacklin, Snail Mail, Mitski, Japanese Breakfast, Jay Som, Eskimeaux, Alex G, Hovvdy, Allison Crutchfield, Angel Olsen.
